The copies of sepulchral stelae, and statues, and other inscribed monuments 
published in this Part, illustrate the funerary art and customs of the ancient 
Egyptians under the Ancient and Middle and New Empires, and form an 
important contribution to the literature of Funerary Archaeology. 

The oldest of these monuments are slabs from the mastabah tombs of 
the Ancient Empire, the earliest tlating from the Ilird dynasty. On them 
are sculptured scenes representing the slaughter ot bull as prescribed by the 
Hook of Opening" the Mouth, the transport of funerary offerings to the tomb, 
and the preparations made for the funeral feast (Plates XIII-XVIII). 

The texts and scenes from the mastabah tomb of the great official 
Ur-ari-en-Ptah are of special importance, for they illustrate the treatment of 
the decorations and arrangement of the texts on the inner walls of the mastabah 
tomb of an official under the Vth dynasty. The deceased was a great official, 
for he was priest, councillor, inspector, overseer ot the chancery, king's scribe, 
king's libationer, and he ministered in one of the great .Sun-temples at Sakkareh ; 
and he and his wife Khenti-kau-s were akin to the king (Plates I-XII). 
The canonical list ot offerings, though shorter than that found in the royal 
tombs of the Vlth i_lynast\", contains many interesting variants. 

Pragmeniar\ l)ut interesting inscriptions troni the famous Xlth dynasty 
temple at Der al-Baliri are gi\"en on Plates XXI-XXIV, and copies of 
inscribed stelae of the Xllth and Xlllth dynasties on Plates XXV-XXVIIl. 
The funerary worship of the kings Mentu-hetep, Neb-hapt-ra (Xlth dynasty), 
Amen-hetep 1 and Afdimes Nefertari (XVIIIth dynasty), is well illustrated by 
the Theban stelae reproduced on Plates XXIX-XLII. An interesting group 
ot texts, etc.. from stelae of the XXTlIth and XlXth dynasties found at 
Abydos, will be found on Plates XLIII-L. Among this group the stele, 
containing the biography of Neb-uaui, is of special importance ; this official was 
high priest of Abj^dos and flourished in the reigns of Queen Hatshep-sut and 
Thothmes III. 

The drawings were made by Mr. E. J. Lambert, and the inscriptions 
were copied by Dr. H. R. Hall, Deputy-Keeper in the Department, who has 
also drawn up the descriptions of the Plates.

he was entrusted, in one of which he overthrew certain rebels against Queen Hatshepsut. From 
Abj-dos. Published: Spiegelberg, /?dY-. 7'/v7j'., xix, pp. 97, 98. XVIIIth dynasty. H. 2 ft. 7 in., 
W. I ft. 6J, in. [i 199.] 

Ill IJreasted, Anc. Records, ii, p. 73, described as a statue-inscription. Spiegelberg correctly describes it as a 
" Kalksteinstele." His reading f ^ l' at the end of the last line is correct. This is, evidently, a reference to 
Hatshepsut (Spiegelberg, loc. cit., cf. .Sethe, Ag. Zts., xxxvi. p. 71).
